I haven't been listening to this channel 24/7 since the change but when I have I noticed they've been editing all the songs. Does anyone know if this is a permanent change for all programs on this channel? I really hope not, what is the point of paying for an edited hip hop channel? That's what Sirius 1 is for.

I agree with you, I spoke to customer support rep. She told me to keep sending email to customercare@sirius.com and let them know.

It has a XL tag and it is censored. Many of the rock channels like XMU and Lithium don't even have a XL tag and they are uncensored. I have the plan where I don't get the XL channels but to those who like that type of crud you should get your channel the way it was.

What is odd is some songs are uncensored, and some are censored? Very odd, but I will be calling for sure.

Typically it has been what XM has. While the vast majority of the songs on Squizz were unedited there was a radio edit played every once in a while as that was the only version of the song they had for some reason.

They should have kept, the sirius playlists. All of the music was uncensored.

Everybody that is upset needs to call, I just spoke with a person about this. She stated they have a list of complaints.

Since the channel merge, I've heard many censored songs on Lithium and not one uncensored song. Sirius XMU is still uncensored though. I haven't listened to enough Alt Nation to know what its status is.

You're saying every song on Lithium has something cut out of it?

EVERY song?
